Choking at the bowl.: "After polling some of the country's pre-eminent urologists, we discovered that, surprise, Thad isn't alone. Men experience stage fright at ballpark urinals all the time. In fact, the problem is so common that urologists have a reassuring, pat-on-the-butt-sounding name for it: choking at the bowl. There are three reasons why ballparks cause men to choke-two physical, one psychological."

I can think of at least two other meanings for "choking at the bowl" without even trying.

When I heard 'choking at the bowl', I assume you meant K-State, of course.

Ah. The River of Pee. Not so bad if you are at one of the ends, but if you are unfortunate enough to be towards the middle, you're looking at a Yangtze the likes of which would intimidate the boldest of waders. At Pac Bell Park and QualComm, the last two places I've been to baseball games, they have dispensed with this barbarous urine conveyance. Good thing too. I've been at concerts where guys were peeing in the sink because they couldn't squeeze in, suckling pig style, to the River Of Pee. Women were piled in there, peeing in the men's room. Of course, the variety of woman who is comfortable with that sort of thing is usually not the one you want to see in any state of undress.
